for the policy makers in the united states to put the fiscal cliff ahead of politics. in texas, a democratic caller, henry. caller: good morning. romney is about a year-and-a- half older than i am. i remember in the 1960's they were drafting everybody like crazy. from what i've understand, he went on the religious sabbatical and took a religious draft exemption. back then that was a conscientious objector status in the 1960's when they were drafting everybody to go to vietnam. that was before the lottery system. it was basically the old system. i feel like to the core of romney, he is two-faced. host: what does this have to do with the role of the united nations? caller: if he does not have the guts to stand up for this country, what makes you think he would be suitable to be president of the united states? host: here's thomas on the line. caller: i think the u.n. is doing a decent job. it is an enormous task they are undertaking. the bigger problem is our relationship with israel. we let them dictate to us on everything. the republicans are lining because obama will not meet with benjamin n
to say that about libya. on the second question, pertaining to governor romney, he just needs to present a more compelling vision of what he wants to do with foreign policy of the united states. he has talked about military modernization, governor romney has, and maintaining the strength of our fleet and air forces. i think governor romney is right about that. president obama -- this goes direct your question -- has a very modern view of how to use the military. i think he decided quickly after taking office that he would take us out of iraq, which he did in december 2011, after building up and afghanistan with the surge began drawing down and said that most of our combat troops would be out by 2014. we fought two major land wars simultaneously with hundreds of thousands of troops involved. we have never done that before in american history, with the exception of the second world war. i think president obama wants to avoid the land wars if we can in the future and use the cooperative -- imperative advantage we have, and our air power, at sea power, and special forces. it has been effecti
believe that government has a responsibility to care for them? >> of course not. i agree with mitt romney when he says his comments were poorly phrased. keefe said they were in elegantly stated. i think there is a difference. part of the philosophy of president obama is trying to get as many americans as possible dependent on government so that the democrats can stay in power in perpetuity. the reason i think that is failing is, even those americans, if you break down that 47%, there is a significant chunk of people, receiving social security, who have paid into it their entire life. that is very different from being dependent on welfare. that is a critical safety net our society has counted on that we need to insure remain strong for generations to come. even those who are receiving welfare right now, most americans do not want to stay dependent on government. they want to work for the american dream. they want to work to provide for themselves and their families. i think that is why the obama administration's objective is essentially using bread and circuses to make as many people as po
industry. the interest of agriculture and the united states are aligned and i am appalled that neither governor romney or president obama is talking about agriculture in this campaign. it is an important part, a foundation of the u.s. economy. ethanol, i fought for ethanol since i was governor. it has lowered the price of fuel. it is created tens of thousands of jobs. i was in blair last week, a great example of bipartisan effort. there is a new dcompany with a hundred jobs. is is not a failure. this is not a threat to our economy. the interest of agriculture and the united states are completely in alignment. there's no need to choose. >> senator fischer? >> i grew up in lincoln. my husband and i have been married for 40 years. agriculture is important to the state. what is important is that we always work together as a state. is urban and rural interests, and because of agriculture, it is important to the state of nebraska a. one entry jobs is dependent on the agriculture economy. people across nebraska realize and understand that. we need to keep in mind, a balancing act. we have don
grants. that is what we have been fighting for. again, you have a choice because governor romney wants to roll back all that stuff we did. it is a shame. we can gut education to pay for tax breaks for the wealthy or we can decide that in the united states, no child should have her dreams deferred because of an overcrowded classrooms. no family should have to set aside a college except his letter because they do not have the money. -- acceptance letter because they do not have the money. ohio, i am asking you to help me recruit 100,000 new math and science teachers. help me give 2 million workers the chance to learn the skills they need at community colleges that will lead directly to a new job. help us work with colleges and universities to cut the cost of tuition. [applause] help us choose that future for americans. number 4, let's reduce the deficit in a way that does not stick it to middle class families. i have already worked republicans to cut one trillion dollars in spending and i'm willing to do more. i have a plan for a trillion deficit-reduction. we cannot cut our way to prosp
see manufacturing jobs flocking back to the united states. are you hearing these things from these other two guys? no. they are arguing over who will spend more money on medicare. romney said he wants to increase spending for the military and balance the budget. it doesn't add up. i guess we believe in santa claus and the easter bunny and i do not think they are coming. host: gary johnson is with us and will add a third line for third party voters. we will get to your calls in just a couple of moments. what is the strategy for the rest of the election? guest: right now there is a lot of attention that is being drawn to what it is that i am saying. i'm being recognized for being at 6% nationally. i'll ask you an obvious question that has an obvious answer. are you hearing my name six times for every time you hear obama or romney's name 100 times? if my name was just being mentioned in line with where i'm calling, i think my 6% would be 14% and i would be the next president of the united states. host: gary from pittsburgh. caller: i saw your debate about three months ago. you r
the political one. after romney's trip to israel and all the statements that had been made trying to describe what life is like between israel and the united states under obama, i enjoyed reading what a woman over there thought and she said, he is just pandering to us. >> you're talking about sequestration. we have speakers on the hill who are kicking cans down the road. iran and afghanistan. this administration -- we are taking our forces out by 2014. some people in military say that it is premature. along the same way with iran, people talk about the red lines but if they are the color of a jacket. you can see them. i can remember us in north korea were they had a separate program. cowrie take action if we want to? >> with regard -- can we take action if we want to? >> with regard to iraq, there is a pretty strong level of confidence that we have a good handle on the program. with that said, there is always potential for surprises. what this president has insured is that we have taken the necessary preparatory steps so that the options are real. they are ready. i can tell you that when he t
at for the voters we are trying to hear from a different battleground states, it is an opportunity to hear from people as they are meeting the president or governor rodney. -- romney. you might learn that instantaneously in a way that you could not do that before. >> i guess it is appropriate that i be the contrary in. dodge that is why we have you. >> i belong to a different generation and i signed up for twitter a couple years ago because i wanted to write about it. i wanted to see how many followers i would get. as a print person, i have a hard time seeing it with a straight face. i do follow some news people, but i kind of forget about it. i will come on and go, what am i going to do? i can get in the hot tub. i followed during the day and i find that i will sometimes say something and i always regret it. leading makes me feel a little bit cuter than i need the, and typically, i am at home with the laptop and the wine glass next to me. i have a sign on my desk that says do not drink and dissent. -- do not drink and send. i thought the world was coming to an end when george stephanopoulos in
, mitt romney, mitch, harry reid -- i work for the people of massachusetts. i am named the least partisan senator and united states senate. >> it is striking the youth support governor running for president, i assume. >> as i said, when it comes to dealing with the economic issues, absolutely. >> you would be a reliable ally? >> it depends on with the issue is. >> on his economic plan. you said there's no one better. >> i also would like to read the bill. because i do. a lot of people to not to read the bills. i want to vote. i am a reliable vote for the bill. that is evidenced by my voting record. >> it is striking that we look to your campaign ads, is president obama that you see touting your work. we could not find any instance with you with governor romney having made any campaign appearances with him. there is an appearance york distancing yourself from governor romney to appeal to voters, specifically here in massachusetts. being " -- being too close to him may be a problem. [applause] >> as you know, in the second- most bipartisan member. i take pride in that. i was also proud to s
words against him. this was soon after the president's state of the union address. we have come too far to turn back now. this is donald trump and the mitt romney over there. "you guys hold him down, and i will cut his hair off." obama is pointing at mitt romney. america, i smell something fishy. there we go. this is the president painting the economy over there which has wilted. we have it flip-flops here. government health care and same- sex marriage. mitt romney says, well, you get used to it. -- used to them. these are the obamacare sparklers. there it is. the tea party, that is mitt romney and paul ryan. "you are not really my type, but your wing man makes you irresistible." do you support chick-fil-a's ceo on traditional marriage or do you favor a nationwide boycott? i miss the separation of church and fast food. this is not talking to the machine very well. do we support the failed policies that got us into the miss or the failed policies that have not gotten us out of it? i do a lot of cartoons where i do not really concentrate -- i am a big believer in the just opposing stupidi
.s.." this is the former ambassador to the u.n. and another advisor to governor romney. i say this not to make a partisan statement here but to say that it's different. we spent years in the bush years talking about an imperial role for the united states. empire means you have a power above the rules. they make rules for everybody else. that is just not what that view is in my view. with a united states that can solve its domestic problems and recapture a sense that it is an example worth emulating that there is, although they are not nearly as strong as we would like them to become a health and strength in a multinational system. >> to talk a lot about continuity. -- you talk a lot about continuity. if you set aside the past 50 years, the longest extended a continuous strain in u.s.- international outlook was isolationism. it was looking after our own problems, staying out of it, taking advantage of the fact that the atlantic and the pacific immunize us against being involved on the other side of the world. do you worry that there is an impulse within the far right, and to some degree in the far left go
